Important to know

First of all, a news agency is a legal entity that can be created in any legal form.

Only a citizen or a legal entity of Ukraine can be the founder of a news agency. Foreigners can be only co-founders.

The total share owned by the foreigners in the charter capital of the news agency cannot be more than 35%.


What are the requirements to the charter of a news agency?

The Charter of a news agency should disclose full information about it: the sphere of information dissemination, the objective and areas of activity, the languages on which the information will be distributed, and so forth.

Is it necessarily to notarize a copy of the Charter when registering a news agency as a subject of information activity?

No. According to the Law of Ukraine “On News Agencies”, only an application is submitted to the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. The Ministry of Justice of Ukraine has no authority to require additional documents, and that is why it is not necessary to submit a copy of the Charter.
